Bodman "Highly Recommended" in Benchmark Litigation 2020
Bodman PLC has again been named a “highly recommended” law firm for business litigation in the 2020 edition of the internationally-recognized journal Benchmark Litigation.
Firms listed as “highly recommended” received the most favorable evaluations by peers and clients during Benchmark’s extensive research process and are regarded as “dominant” in their jurisdiction and area of practice.
Benchmark also recognizes individual attorneys as “Local Litigation Stars,” “Future Stars,” or as members of its “Under 40 Hot List” of up and coming litigation stars. Bodman attorneys listed in at least one of these categories include Justin P. Bagdady, Sarah L. Cylkowski, Michelle Thurber Czapski, Nathan D. Dupes, Dennis J. Levasseur, Rebecca D’Arcy O’Reilly, Thomas J. Rheaume, Jr., Joseph J. Shannon, Thomas J. Tallerico, and Thomas Van Dusen. Donald H. Scharg is listed as a “Labor & Employment Star” in a special edition of Benchmark focused on Labor & Employment litigation. Overall, Bodman has more attorneys listed in Benchmark than any other Michigan law firm.
In their editorial on Bodman, the editors of Benchmark noted that “the [Bodman] litigation group is showcased for providing a ‘high level of knowledge and industry expertise.’ One client says about the firm’s litigation group, ‘I have been thoroughly pleased with the work that Bodman attorneys have provided. They are very responsive [and] extremely knowledgeable.’ ”
Benchmark is the only rating publication that focuses exclusively on litigation departments in the United States. Its findings are the result of four to six months of research with leading litigation attorneys and their clients. Researchers examine recent casework handled by law firms and ask individual litigators to offer their professional opinions on peers.
Bodman’s Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution Practice Group attorneys appear before state and federal courts and in non-judicial forums such as national and international arbitration proceedings. The group’s expertise spans many industries including banking and financial services, automotive, insurance, healthcare, manufacturing, real estate and zoning, and construction, among others.
